I was dragging my butt this morning when I got it going so I went out for some chair hopping around the yard.
First blueberries are ripe
While I was sitting in one spot I seemed to remember I ate one ripe blueberry yesterday and since I was sitting by the blueberry patch I went on in to see if any more berries where ripe yet.
I find blueberries hard to get pictures of as they disappear so fast. Yummy. There will be more soon.
I did work on the cars brake light problem and found some wire and ran it but never got around to hooking up the ends as I wasn’t in the mood.
My brother has been using a lot of water to start all his vegetables this year and it takes a lot of it to get them going and make them tender so I have to watch our water supply as it also feeds five houses.
Dirt bike ride
Just before I hopped on the dirt bike my brother came by and we went over and turned one of the wells into one of his gardens so that will help but he’s still using a good deal of the water. The well water is just the spring water after it’s come down out of the hills.
Checking on springs and a ride
As long as I was on the dirt bike I rode up into the hills to check on some springs that feed the water tanks to see how things where doing as far as water as it does slow down as the summer progresses.
Old Indian spring
And then headed down the hill and stopped at this spot we call the Indian spring as they used to use it a long time ago when they were harvesting tan oak nuts. The used the water to grind the nuts up and soak them to get the bitters out of them for eating. I looked around a bit and then took off down the hill.
And of course I stopped at my brother’s garden to see how the strawberries were doing. I went past his chickens. He raises them for the eggs which he sells at the farmer’s markets. They do get all of his garden scraps.

Taking it easy
I headed for home after that and still didn’t feel like doing much today so a nap was in order.
The rest of the day was chair hopping and napping and just taking it easy.
